It's time for some BS! Can't Post

This is a Book Spoiler about the strength and resolve of King Théoden...and the peace is gives him... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

The Muster of Rohan


..."'Harrowdale at last!' said Éomer. 'Our journey is almost at an end.' They halted. The paths out of the narrow gorge fell steeply. Only a glimpse... ...could be seen of the great valley in the gloaming below...
... '...This journey is over, maybe,' said Théoden, 'but I have far yet to go. Last night the moon was full, and in the morning I shall ride to Edoras to the gathering of the Mark.'
... 'But if you would take my counsel,' said Éomer in a low voice, 'you would then return hither, until the war is over, lost or won.'
... Théoden smiled. 'Nay, my son, for so I will call you, speak not the words of Wormtongue in my old ears!' He drew himself up and looked back at the long line of his men fading into the dusk behind. 'Long years in the space of days it seems since I rode west; but never will I lean on a staff again. If the war is lost, what good will be my hiding in the hills? And if it is won, what grief will it be even if I fall, spending my last strength? But we will leave this now. Tonight I will lie in the Hold of Dunharrow. One evening of peace at least is left us. Let us ride on!'
... In the deepening dusk they came down into the valley... ...The ford was guarded. As the king approached many men sprang up out of the shadow of the rocks; and when they saw the king they cried with glad voices: 'Théoden King! Théoden King! The King of the Mark returns!'
... Then one blew a long call on a horn. It echoed in the valley. Other horns answered it, and lights shone out across the river.
... And suddenly there rose a great chorus of trumpets from high above, sounding from some hollow place... ...that gathered their notes into the one voice and sent it rolling and beating on the walls of stone. ... So the King of the Mark came back victorious out of the West to Dunharrow beneath the feet of the White Mountains."
